    STAX SR-009S new flagship electrostatic earspeakers released (with impressions)

    Got mine yesterday. The 009 is at times a little strident. (I have always liked them though) The 009S is not. Better mids. Soundstage a little more than 009. Haven’t noticed much difference in the bass yet. Subtle differences but an improvement overall. 009S is now my favorite headphone...

    STAX SR-009S new flagship electrostatic earspeakers released (with impressions)

    I went to yodobashi in akihabara. I guess they ran out. I ended up ordering from Justin since it comes with warranty for the us. (head amp)

    I am in Tokyo currently. Could not audition the 009S. Fujiyama avic doesn’t have them! Neither does Yodobashi.

    The Stax Thread III

    That premise is plain wrong. It depends on what you are using.

    The Stax Thread III

    Ha Ha. Spritzer is one of the best when it comes to electrostatics. I would pay attention to what he says if I were you. If Kevin Gilmore speaks: well, he is the King :)

    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    Received the ER4X4's today. I think they are easily amongst the best IEM's out there at any price if you are lucky and able to use them without discomfort. I use the large Etymotic black foams for extended periods without discomfort and with the best isolation I have ever experienced; even more...

    Westone W80

    They don't. There is no scientific basis for it. And even if there were, human ears could not detect it. The placebo effect on the other hand is well documented. And because of it, people will continue to swear there is a difference. And cable makes will continue to be sold........

    Headamp Blue Hawaii Special Edition

    I have had extended listening opportunities for the T2 and BH at meets. Megatron is at the same level (IMHO). Having the KGSShv also, I prefer the Megatron. My next build will be the carbon or GG. Just can't make my mind between the 2 of them.

    Westone W80

    Actually there is absolutely no scientific explanation for cables making a difference. It is called placebo effect.

    Westone W80

    Problem is 2 guys keep making a lot of noise. Chill, buy another brand and go to your favorite thread. It is tiresome to keep listening to all this BS.

    Westone W80

    Ha ha. Have purchased plenty of high end headphones and IEM's in the past and Westone continues to be amongst my favorites. While JH audio and others need a supersize Frankenstein IEM for the same number of drivers, Westone is able to squeeze that many in a tiny IEM. Able to go to bed with...
